Let it be known that Chris Kastner of CK’s Real Food in Hailey loves to cook with bones, but for this preparation, he prefers the ease of boneless short ribs. At CK’s, Kastner roasts seasoned carrots cut into coins and scattered over the cooked ribs before sprinkling with cheese for the final cooking step. To simplify the recipe, we’ve left out the extra carrot-roasting step, but kept the umami flavor-boosting from the cheese. One more piece of advice: have all your ingredients prepped before you begin. Prep time is almost an hour, and braising is 2-1/2 hours.
